broiled sweet-and-spicy salmon with pineapple... 20 minutes

the goods:

1 cup long-grain white rice
1/4 cup pure maple syrup
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 pound skinless salmon fillet, cut into serving pieces
nonstick cooking spray
1/2 of a whole pineapple, peeled, cored, and cut into chunks
1/4 cup fresh cilantro leaves, roughly chopped
lime wedges, for serving

Heat broiler, with rack in top position. Cook rice according to package instructions. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, stir together maple syrup and cayenne pepper. Season salmon with salt and pepper. Spray a rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray, arrange salmon and pineapple in a single layer, and brush with half the maple syrup glaze.

Broil until salmon is cooked through, 8 to 11 minutes, brushing salmon and pineapple with glaze halfway through. Add cilantro to rice and fluff with a fork.

Serve rice with salmon, pineapple, and lime wedges.
